Hear What Patients Have to Say:

“Dr. William Bearden, III is my plastic surgeon for life! He performed an upper blepharoplasty/lower blepharoplasty with fat transfer, and laser resurfacing. With great appreciation, his professional and profound surgical skills have given me a new confidence in life. Dr. Bearden erased 30 plus years of Graves disease from my face. Formerly donning uneven bulging eyes with large bags, accompanied with droopy eyelids resting upon my eyelashes, it had created a melancholy appearance. Today, with symmetry and the appearance of bigger and brighter eyes, and a smoother complexion at the orbitals and cheek bones, the compliments are aplenty. Friends and family are ecstatic for me. I am so very pleased with my decision in bettering my appearance. Aesthetician, Pheenie Scott, is on staff and quite helpful in addressing ways to extend the life of one’s treatment. I love the fine quality of the ZO products offered. Always read the post-op instructions prior to the surgery date. Having followed the tips systematically, I am convinced it was the answer to quick healing. My experience at the Virginia Eye Institute was unequivocally positive. If I want to discuss any other treatments in the future, I will call Dr. Bearden at VEI Aesthetic Center. Thank you, Dr. Bearden and to your dedicated staff members.”
